The Flower Cart #theblogginglounge

Standing at the back door looking out to the greenest of green grass while my coffee brews
 makes the morning feel fresh and new. Maybe makes life feel fresh and new.
Yes, a new start. A new chance.
Not that life has been bad to this point, not at all.
Yet, since the goal is to be a better person each day, the green-ness is a reminder.

The little cart with ivy growing and blooms just about to open is alone in the center of the yard.
It sits with no distractions.
Seeing it feels warm. Seeing it feels as if nature is tapping on my shoulder. Come play!
And play, I shall.
I am not able to refuse the call of sun and warm air and green things growing.
I will tend to the flowers and the pristine water in the pool.
I will sit near the bird bath and hummingbird feeders and enjoy their chirps.
I will sip my coffee in silence just soaking in all that makes me happy about my own 
little piece of the earth.
Just the sight of the little cart I filled with growing plants will be enough to step into this day 
with a smile of summer's promises.

    2. Tell me about it. I was bitching out the iciness yesterday. We have sunshine in the afternoon, but it's still not above 40 during the day. I wants warmth. Though I'm quite grateful for the sun at least. Lots aren't seeing that pretty bit.

  5. I'm still loving my snow but this post did get me thinking about gardening and everything that needs to be done this spring.. I suppose if I only have to see this greenery on the screen for the moment I'm okay with that. :)

  7. You are the ultimate Spring/Summer personality to my Fall/Winter Jo. This was a perfect prompt for you and yes, even made me yearn for a warm and sun filled day. (I do love to garden too.) Nice piece with nice images.

    1. Thanks ... we are nearly polar opposites on weather, but not on important things. I'm yearning...a little.

  8. If I close my eyes I can feel the sun against my face... oh wait! That's because it IS shining today :-)

    Looking forward to sharing the warming sunshine as the sprouts begin to bloom. Soon.
